02/15/2018 - World War I Exhibit Reception At CSC
The Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center will be hosting a reception on Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 4:00-5:30 PM for the "Over Here: Americans at Home in World War I," from the National Archives. The display draws on the holdings of the National Archives to capture the patriotic fervor of draft registration and the emotional goodbyes of men leaving for WWI training camps. They will be serving what the women from the Salvation Army served to the soldiers - Donuts! Guest presenter is Sandra Reddish, the Historic Sites Coordinator of the Nebraska State Historical Society. She will be speaking about her own collection of uniform articles, equipment, original postcards, recordings of original music, and a suitcase Victrola with an original 1918 record. Everyone is invited to attend. For more information, contact Laure Sinn at 432-6401.
